violence, abuse

 

Violence against pro-life groups and individuals has been underreported by mainstream media outlets even though it occurs on a fairly regular basis and has for decades. While pro-life activists and organizations have received their share of threats (phone calls, mail, personal threats, online, etc.), more serious attacks of vandalism and even violent assault take place against pro-lifers with little mention in the press.

The false painting of pro-life groups as hateful and violent even led to a deranged gunman seeking to shoot staff at the pro-life Family Research Council. In 2009, Harlan Drake shot and murdered pro-life activist James Pouillon, while Pouillon displayed images of babies outside a Michigan school. Recently a man was indicted on federal charges after threatening to kill or rape members of Operation Rescue. Other threats to pro-lifers involving guns — including one by an abortionist — have thus far ended peacefully.

 

Live Action News previously documented an act of arson committed against Janet Folger Porter, who wrote about the incident in her book, True to Life, where she published this image of her car which was burned:

 

The abortion lobby, with the help of complicit pro-abortion media has portrayed pro-lifers as “violent” with regularity. The effort is led by the National Abortion Federation (NAF), which collects alleged “violence and disruption” claims from abortion providers and publishes them annually. While there are serious incidents listed, the report lacks evidence that every alleged act is being committed by pro-life advocates and not a disgruntled employee, angry family member, or random criminal. In addition, NAF pads the numbers by including incidents of non-violent civil disobedience and protest.

Unfortunately, while pro-life groups focus on rescuing babies and helping their mothers, to my knowledge, there is not currently a national system to report pro-abortion violence. However violence has been documented by Live Action News and other groups.

Brian Clowes at Human Life International collected data on pro-choice violence for many years. According to a report from Life News, Clowes published 1,200 pages of descriptions and documentation. The research, no longer published online, tracked violence committed by abortion providers (some in prison for murder), by pro-choice men who assaulted or murdered girlfriends for refusing to submit to abortion, and by pro-choice supporters who attacked pro-life sidewalk counselors.

“If people truly understood how backwards the media narrative is regarding the supposed intolerance and violence of pro-lifers, compared to that of ‘pro-choicers,’ we would be having a very different conversation about abortion in our nation today,” Clowes once told the Susan B. Anthony List.

The pro-life group Life Dynamics recently issued a report that shows abortion providers have been sexually assaulting and raping their clients for years. “In my 1996 book, Lime 5, I referenced more than 30 documented criminal cases in which abortion clinic doctors had been charged with raping or sexually assaulting their patients. In just these few cases, several hundred women were known to have been victimized,” president Mark Crutcher noted. There are also many other reported cases.

Life Dynamics also tracked incidents of forced abortion, and when the pro-life group created a tool called a “force form” to help protect women and thwart coercion, they claimed abortion advocates condemned it. Life Dynamics wrote:

Of course, the abortion industry has known for years that forced abortions are a problem – there have even been discussions about it at National Abortion Federation conferences. The discussions at these meetings reveal that the same people who advocate for “choice” to the media, politicians, and the country – [have] a stance of “convenient indifference” when it comes to women being forced to get abortions. They acknowledge its existence and talk about it in disapproving tones, while making it clear that they feel no obligation to let it influence the way they deal with these women.

In the interest of full disclosure, I conducted research for Life Dynamics’ “Under the Radar” report documenting how women who refuse to submit to abortion are attacked or assaulted. As the report details, the media is quite silent about this form of abortion-related violence:

[W]hen we were able to obtain copies of police reports, indictments, court records or other similar documentation for these cases, they would almost universally show that when a perpetrator is confronted by an unwanted pregnancy, his first response is not violence but a demand that his partner have an abortion. When violence ensues, it is inevitably a reaction to her refusal to comply.

However, the media’s coverage of these incidents often contains no mention of abortion. Instead, they either portray women who are attacked for refusing to have abortions as women who are attacked for getting pregnant, or they characterize the incident as one of simple “domestic violence” in which the victim’s pregnancy is basically inconsequential.

While the media touts pro-abortion violence statistics, consistently left out is the fact that women are injured and even killed by the abortion industry — Laura Hope Smith, and like Planned Parenthood patients Cree-Erwin and Tonya Reaves. I attended the funeral of Carolina Gutierrez and previously detailed how her agonizing death following her legal abortion took weeks. The infection was so horrific, she developed gangrene, enduring amputations prior to her death.

As we move closer to fully abolishing abortion in the United States, violence against pro-lifers is expected to intensify. But, despite the dangers, every pro-life activist and organization understands that the act of abortion itself is the most heinous form of violence on innocent preborn babies.

Pro-life leader who once survived arson attack challenges “obstructionist Republican establishment” in Ohio Senate

Posted in Janet Porter, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

A long-time pro-life leader has decided to run for the Senate in the state of Ohio to challenge what she calls “the establishment” which has refused to pass the pro-life Heartbeat bill. Janet Folger Porter has been fighting abortion for over thirty years. Her leadership helped pass the first ban on the infamous partial birth abortion method. In that procedure, the abortionist delivers the preborn child up to the shoulders, he then pierces the child’s skull with a pair of medical scissors and suctions out the brain tissue, enabling the collapse of the baby’s head which kills the child. The procedure was defended by Hillary Clinton during her term as a US Senator.

Janet Head Shot Hi-Res

It was this now illegal abortion procedure that appeared to be described by a high ranking staffer at Planned Parenthood caught on under cover video by the Center for Medical Progress who exposed their grisly baby harvesting operation. As a result, pro-lifers have called for an investigation into the potential that Planned Parenthood is violating the law.

I have known Janet Porter for many years. I have followed her bold stand as well as her witty and brilliant personality. What you see in Janet publicly, rest assured is the same privately. She is one of the most honest, godly, and hard working woman I have ever met. Janet is 100% committed to the cause of defending the preborn child in the womb. But, her stand has not been an easy one. Over the years, Janet has made a number of enemies. She is feared by groups like Right-Wing Watch who describes her an “anti-choice” threat and has published numerous alerts on her views. Janet told Saynsumthn that she is the most “watched” female by the pro-abortion group, second only to Michele Bauchman. In response to the criticism, Janet said that she not deterred by those who oppose her, telling Saynsumthn that, “When you spend your life standing for God’s word and His principles people don’t always say nice things about you.”

Janet Folger Porter prolife Bomb Threat

Tragically, words are not the only “ammunition” that have been used by Janet’s enemies over the years. The pro-life leader has also received numerous threats, including having her vehicle sabotaged when someone cut her gas line. It happened in 1994 when abortion was front and center in the news much like it is today. Janet recalled seeing smoke coming out of her car prior to a political rally for a pro-life Democrat candidate she had planned to attend. After getting out of the car she saw a line of fire from the driveway into her garage, but thankfully the fire was confined to her car engine and she was not hurt. The fire was ruled as arson and although no one was ever charged, Janet had her suspicions that she was targeted because of her pro-life activism.

“The arson investigator said the attack was deliberate. The banner headline of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Friday, May 13, 1994, read: Right to Life Leader’s car Sabotaged, Odds are it is connected to abortion issue, police say.” The sticker on the bumper read: “Abortion? Pick on someone your own size.”

Janet wrote about the incident in her book, True to Life where she published this image of her burnt out car.

Janet Folger Porter prolife threatened bomb abortion Cleveland paper

Janet’s thirty years of pro-life activism began in high school where she was first convicted about abortion after she was shown a picture of an aborted baby for the first time. Today, Janet has spent the last few years working to pass the Heartbeat Bill in Ohio. This legislation works on the premise that if death is decided when a heartbeat ends, then life should be protected when the heartbeat begins. She told Saynsumthn that her involvement in a failed pro-life initiative in South Dakota helped birth the concept behind the Heartbeat Bill.

“The Supreme Court has said states can intervene and protect life in the womb if there is a likelihood of survival to live birth. But right now they are picking viability as their marker. Well, we have a better one. It’s called the heartbeat,” she said adding that, “Heartbeat is an indicator of life that is universally recognized across the wold, why should we ignore it when it comes to the very young?” she asked.

Janet said she is committed to protecting every preborn child in the womb, but for now, “If we can’t rescue all the children out of the burning building all at once, you carry out as many as you can – then go back for the rest,” she explained.

It was her passion to pass the Heartbeat Bill in the Ohio legislature that promoted her decision to run for state Senate. Janet said that she is hoping to unseat incumbent state Republican Senator Larry Obhof and that she is running against what she calls “the Republican establishment.” According to Janet the so-called “establishment” has “blocked the most pro-life bill to ever pass the Ohio House of Representatives, the Heartbeat Bill” which Janet calls, “our best chance to save the most lives.”

“They will tell you how pro-life they are. In fact, my opponent will claim to have a 100%n voting record. Well that is easy to do when you never vote on the most pro-life bill, the Heartbeat Bill which has the most chance to save lives,” she stated.

Janet has accused her opponent, Larry Obhof, with refusing to initiate and sign a discharge petition to bring the pro-life Heartbeat Bill to the floor for a vote. “He claimed to a local news outlet that I never asked him to sign it,” Porter said.

So I delivered the proof: the receipt of the certified letter which I sent to him on October 21st along with the return postcard which showed that he, in fact, received it.”

Janet’s determination has brought her before Ohio lawmakers many times with several victories along the way. Janet has had plenty of experience with lawmakers. After she co-founded Students for Life in 1985 at Cleveland State University as an undergrad student she became Legislative Director of Ohio Right to Life for nearly a decade. It was in this role that Janet helped pass pro-life laws including the Woman’s Right to Know law (with a 24 hour waiting period), Parental Consent, Fetal Homicide, protection against dehydration and starvation, as well as the nation’s first ban on Partial Birth Abortion.

Janet explained that after asking others to run against what she calls the “obstructionist Republican establishment” she stepped up when no one responded. “If nobody else would do it, I put my own faith to action and I pulled petitions to run for the state Senate.” But, the feisty pro-life female leader said she has also launched her political campaign for the cause of liberty, “The more I think about it, we could have a lot of fun in the Ohio Senate. Instead of being on the outside begging them for their vote, we could actually take our government back! Because, you know what? It doesn’t belong to the establishment incumbents – it belongs to we the people.”

Janet Folger Porter for Senate

Janet said that her campaign needs a lot of prayer, support, feet on the ground and, of course plenty of contributions. Early voting in the state begins in a few months and the election will take place March 15, 2016. But, despite the uphill battle, Janet remained optimistic about her chances of winning:

“Here’s my chances with God all things are possible.”

Who Is Killing Black Babies? Planned Parenthood

Posted in Cecile Richards, Tonya Reaves with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2015 by saynsumthn

Recently, Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards sent out a tweet with the hashtag #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches concerned about the recent church fires that have been reported.

Cecile Richards Planned Parenthood burning churches

As genuine as her tweet seemed there is one problem – Planned Parenthood is the number one destroyer of black lives in the womb. #WhoIsKillingBlackBabies

On top of that, the abortion business Richards runs was thoughtless about the life of a young black woman who died after her abortion at their center.

In fact, Planned Parenthood left her bleeding out for hours before they bothered to call for emergency help to get her to a hospital. #WhoCaresAboutBlacksAgain?

As it turns out, the anniversary of this Black woman’s death is this month. But she was not the only one.

Tonya Reaves SAY her Name Planned Parenthood 8771253239275194306_n

Her name was Tonya Reaves and you can read about what happened to her and how Planned Parenthood may have used their political cronies to escape an investigation – here. #WhoIsKillingBlackWomen?

Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist member of the American Eugenics Society who gave dozens of Klan speeches.

They are now funded by the US tax payer to 1/2 BILLION dollars a year!!!

So, when the president of an organization which was founded by a Klan speaking racist pretends to “care” about Blacks think again. #WhoIsFoolingBlackPeople?

Ask Planned Parenthood and Cecile Richards why they promote the killing of Black babies and why they did not care about the death of Tonya Reaves. #WhoIsKillingBlackBabies #WhoKilledaBlackWomanWithAbortion

Fire breaks out at abortion clinic which used to employ doc now accused of murder, Steven Brigham

Posted in Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion clinic worker arrested, Abortionist, Abortionist arrested, National Abortion Federation, pro-choice, Pro-choice law breakers, Steven Chase Brigham with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 2, 2012 by saynsumthn

1/3/2012 (PNJ) A New Jersey abortion doctor who is facing murder charges in connection with late-term abortions is linked to the Pensacola abortion clinic that burned Sunday.

Records show that a mailing address for American Family Planning clinic in Pensacola matches an address used by Dr. Steven Brigham in Voorhees, N.J.

American Family Planning lists its physical address at 6770 N. Ninth Ave. and its mailing address as 1 Alpha Ave. in Voorhees, N.J., according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.

The New Jersey address used by Brigham is the location of American Women’s Services, which offers abortion and gynecological services.

Brigham was being held in Camden County Jail in New Jersey pending extradition to Maryland.

Pensacola Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Peake tells the Pensacola News Journal ( http://on.pnj.com/v4Ykmh) that the two-story building housing the American Family Planning clinic was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived just after 1 a.m. Sunday.No one was injured. Peake said the investigation was turned over to the state.

The clinic formerly known as The Ladies Center and as Community Healthcare…In 1995, a New York Times article reported that Florida suspended the license of the Ladies Center abortionist: Steven Brigham. He had been performing abortions at the Ladies Center in Pensacola despite his well publicized cases from New Jersey, New York, Georgia, and California.

Investigators have determined that the fire at the American Family Planning clinic, 6770 N. Ninth Ave., started outside the building, Deborah Cox, a state fire marshal’s office spokeswoman, said this morning.

“We have not determined that it’s arson,” Cox said. “The investigation is continuing in that regard. We haven’t determined the cause of the fire.”
Police Chief Simmons said he was not aware of any recent threats against the clinic.

The clinic pays off-duty Pensacola police officers to provide security.

On Oct. 30, 2009, Community Healthcare Center voluntarily closed because of its failure to pay a $413,000 fine to the state for a licensing violation. In January of that year, a survey by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration determined that the center’s lab license had been expired.

Meanwhile, the circuit riding abortionist who owned the abortion clinic and then used the Pensacola clinic as his mailing address has a history of abuses. In 1998, Steven Chase Brigham was sentenced to four months in jail for failing to file corporate income tax returns and bilking insurance companies in New York, according to a Boston newspaper.

Last week- Brigham was arrested and charged with murder for several abortions he performed in Maryland on babies that were viable. Brigham has a history of abuse of women and children through botched abortions, which the media has chosen to ignore and leave off this story. I am sure the media wants to hang this on the backs of pro-lifers without even entertaining the idea that the records at that clinic might implicate Brigham further…..

According to reports, Brigham has had a shaky history in Florida as well….When Brigham came to Pensacola, his license had been suspended in two states and restricted in two others. He also had agreed to retire from practicing in another state.
Pensacola abortion opponents expressed concern about Brigham working here. They protested outside a state agency in Tallahassee in December 1994. They also asked the Agency for Health Care Administration, which oversees the Florida State Board of Medicine, to suspend Brigham’s license to practice in Florida.

In February 1995, the agency suspended Brigham’s Florida medical license. The agency cited three violations:

» Brigham’s failed to notify Florida about actions against his license. In 1992, he agreed to have his license placed on permanent inactive status in Pennsylvania. In 1994, his New York license was revoked and his New Jersey license was suspended.

» He failed to notify Florida that he changed the primary place of his practice from New Jersey to Pensacola.
» Brigham failed to get malpractice insurance when he began practicing in Pensacola.
The Florida Board of Medicine decided to revoke Brigham’s license in June 1996

The recorded incidents of Brigham’s other questionable activities are detailed below:

Two abortion doctors charged with murder, anoth…, posted with vodpod

BALTIMORE — Two doctors who Maryland authorities say botched a teenager’s abortion last year in Elkton, Md., have been indicted on murder charges and are awaiting extradition from New Jersey and Utah, where they were arrested this week.

Steven Chase Brigham, 55, of Voorhees, N.J., and Nicola Irene Riley, 46, of Salt Lake City, Utah, had been ordered to stop practicing medicine by the Maryland Board of Physicians in September 2010, a month after officials said an operation at the Elkton clinic went awry.

In that case, which police said forms the basis for most of the criminal charges filed this week, an 18-year-old woman from New Jersey suffered a ruptured uterus and other internal injuries during a procedure at the American Woman’s Services clinic on East High Street in Elkton.

The physicians board found that the woman, who was 21 weeks pregnant, had initially been treated in Voorhees, N.J., where her cervix was dilated. The woman was then told to travel, in her own car, to Elkton so doctors could complete the procedure.

After the woman suffered a ruptured uterus, state officials said Riley put the patient in Brigham’s rented Chevrolet Malibu and drove her Union Hospital in Elkton. The board said she sat in slumped in a wheelchair, nearly unconscious, outside the emergency room, while Riley argued with hospital staff, demanding their identities before treating the woman.

The woman was flown that day to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for more treatment. State officials said Riley then returned to his clinic in Elkton to perform another abortion. The injured woman survived.

Maryland’s abortion law, which is less restrictive than in nearby states, may explain why the procedure was initiated elsewhere and completed in Elkton. In other states, later abortions must be performed at a surgical center or hospital rather than at a doctor’s office. In New Jersey, pregnancies after 14 weeks cannot be ended at doctors’ offices.

After this case, the state Health Department proposed regulations to increase oversight of surgical abortion clinics.

Elkton police said they searched the clinic on East High Street but could not located medical records for the woman. But police said they found 35 later-term fetuses, some 20 to 35 weeks old, in a freezer. The Philadelphia Inquirer has reported that Brigham’s four New Jersey clinics cannot perform abortions after the first trimester — 14 weeks of pregnancy — because they did not meet safety standards.

Another doctor at the clinic, George Shepard Jr., 88, also had his Maryland license suspended by the Board of Physicians, but he has not been charged with a crime. ( And here NJ Case here) State authorities said Brigham ran a string of clinics in several states, including Pennsylvania and New York. His Maryland clinics were located in Elkton, Baltimore, College Park, Frederick and Cheverly.

Both doctors who have been charged have previously lost their licenses to practice medicine or run clinics in several states, including New York and Pennsylvania.

Brigham faces five counts of first-degree murder, five counts of second-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder. Riley faces one count each of first- and second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Details behind each of the murder counts was not given by Elkton police, who issued a news release on the charges but cited only the case of the 18-year-old woman who was injured. It was not immediately clear if the other murder counts related to the other fetuses that police said were found in the clinic’s freezer.

In early August 2010 abortion patient “D.B.”, as records identify her, went to Steven Chase Brigham’s American Women’s Center in Voorhees, New Jersey, and discovered she was 21.5 weeks pregnant. In order to skirt the laws on abortion limits by gestation in New Jersey, Brigham, who is not licensed to practice in Maryland, opened a secret office in a rented medical space in Elkton, Maryland. This clinic was not advertised under Brigham’s American Women’s Services, his four-state empire of 15 known abortion mills. Documents show that the Elkton facility’s paperwork often bore the name Grace Medical Services, but the people that worked there simply referred to it as Elkton. The purpose of this under-the-radar office was to complete second and third trimester abortions that were illegally initiated at Brigham’s Voorhees, New Jersey, headquarters.

It appears in an effort to maximize profit and avoid state law, Brigham would begin the late term abortions in New Jersey, than instruct the women to appear to his office in Maryland where the abortion could be completed legally.

The abortion on D.B. was performed by Brigham’s associate Nicola I. Riley, with Brigham overseeing the procedure. D.B. began her procedure at about 11:00 a.m. and it lasted for about two hours. The patient developed complications and needed to be taken to the nearby hospital. Riley placed D.B. into a wheelchair with her legs up and had intended to push her the two blocks to the emergency room, but the patient’s mother insisted that an ambulance be called, but Riley refused, and after some discussion, D.B. was loaded into Brigham’s rental vehicle and transported to Union hospital. The 18-year-old woman suffered a critical uterine perforation during surgery, she arrived at the hospital bleeding and semiconscious. The patient’s injuries were so complicated that she had to be flown by helicopter to Johns Hopkins Hospital. Riley “returned to the Elkton office … to perform another abortion,” documents report.

According to several archived news sources – abortion doctor Steven Chase Brigham has had a litany of troubles which have plagued him for years.

In 1990 according to The Providence ( A Canadian Newspaper) Brigham attended the National Abortion Federation Conference, where he was quoted in the paper as stating, “We believe women deserve the best care.”

NOTE_ He was obviously associating with NAF and they welcomed Brigham in…but… in 2011 when Brigham was finally arrested NAF Had this to say as their excuse:

Vicky Saporta, president of the National Abortion Federation in Washington, D.C., has said Brigham’s activities “are not representative of abortion care…throughout the country.”
In a September 2010 blog post that addressed an investigation into Brigham’s practices by the Maryland Board of Physicians, Saporta said Brigham “has come under fire from state licensing boards and health departments throughout his career and has had his medical license temporarily suspended, relinquished or revoked in five states.”
“These repeated disciplinary actions make it evident that Dr. Brigham operates outside recognized standards for quality abortion care,
” she said.

Elizabeth Barnes, director of the Cherry Hill Women’s Center Abortion clinic , said this after Brigham’s 2011 arrest, “I am glad that a predator is off the street.”
She added: “I hope the public understands that Steve Brigham is an anomaly and that most abortion care is of high quality.

The only problem with Barnes’ statement is that it is false and the abortion industry covers for these doctors all the time defending the male killers instead of the women seeking the abortion !

In 1991 – Brigham was ordered by Berks County Judge Forrest G. Shaeffer Jr to stop doing abortions at his Berk, PA offices. Shaeffer ruled that Brigham fraudulently concealed his intentions to perform abortions when he signed a lease from the owners: Berkshire Group.

In 1992, according to the Associate Press, Brigham retired his Pennsylvania medical license after a confidential attorney general investigation.

In 1994, The Star Ledger reported that a New Jersey woman filed suit against Brigham after he botched a late stage abortion then kept her bleeding in his office for hours. The suit identified the woman only as “Jane Doe” said that the abortion patient lost 8 units of blood and needed an emergency hysterectomy following her encounter with Steven Brigham at the American Women’s Center in Spring Valley, NY. The paper stated that at the time of the suit, Brigham had lost his medical license in New York.

While lawmakers in Maryland are cracking down on non-surgical Pregnancy Care Centers, they have neglected the high risk surgical abortion clinics, for possibly political reasons. In the 1994 suit mentioned above, the plaintiffs claimed that Brigham lured women into his abortion clinic through deceptive yellow page ads indicating he was ” a specialist in gynecological surgery”

Similar to recent events from the recent Maryland botched abortion incident, in this 1994 case, when the women came to Brigham showing signs of a later term pregnancy than New Jersey law allowed, staff at Brigham’s abortion clinic told her they could do the procedure in New York. During the abortion , according to the article, Brigham slashed the women’s cervix , uterus, and uterine artery. Despite her obvious critical condition, Brigham only called an ambulance after the women went into shock.

In January of 1994, the Star Ledger reported that New Jersey disciplined Brigham’s New Jersey license and according to the 17-page complaint charged that Brigham “has no formal training in obstetrics and gynecology and is neither board certified nor board eligible in any specialty.”

The state also alleged that in 1993, Brigham performed an abortion on a 14 year old girl and barred her mother from the operating room because she could not pay his $50.00 surcharge, for allowing a family member to watch the procedure. In addition, the article states that according to the complaint, Brigham used excessive amounts of sedation and placed gauze in the teen’s mouth during the abortion.

Brigham was also accused by the board of performing second trimester abortions which he was not trained to perform , failed to refer patients for follow-up care, engaged in unsterile practices and published “misleading and deceptive advertisements”.

Also in 1994, according to the Asbury Press, a nurse was so disgusted with the care Brigham gave his abortion patients that she quite working for him. Lynette Zielke of Turnersville, testified before the New Jersey Medical Board that she was the nurse who assisted Brigham in the 1993 abortion on the 14-year-old girl. She said the girl was over sedated and that Brigham risked choking her by stuffing her mouth full of gauze. ” I whispered, do you really want to do this?” Brigham replied, “Yeah , I want to give her a little extra sedation, She needs it.” The nurse then exclaimed that they would not be able to wake her up.

In December of 1994, The Star Ledger headline read, ” New York revokes license of abortion doctor”
The article stated that both New York and New Jersey determined that Brigham was a danger to the public for acting negligently and displaying bad judgement and according to the report would often “inflate and embellish the truth.” Brigham maintained that he was a victim of unfair treatment by the board. At the time of the revocation, Brigham was practicing at an abortion clinic in Florida and had previously let his Georgia license expire instead of facing a disciplinary hearing in that state. In addition, the 1994 news story said the California medical board was meeting to determine whether they would revoke his license as well.

When local pro-life groups publicized the news of Brigham’s disciplinary records, a 1994 Associate Press report quoted Patricia Anderson spokeswomen with the National Abortion Federation as blaming pro-lifers for sleazy abortionists when she stated, that tactics against abortion doctors “create a climate where physicians with less experience can step in.”

In 1995, a New York Times article reported that Florida suspended the license of Steven Brigham. He had been performing abortions at the Ladies Center in Pensacola despite his well publicized cases from New Jersey, New York, Georgia, and California.

In 1998, he was sentenced to four months in jail for failing to file corporate income tax returns and bilking insurance companies in New York, according to a Boston newspaper.

Old news stories also indicate that despite Brigham’s despicable behavior of botched and dangerous abortions, pro-choice supporters routinely came out to escort women into his clinics.

According to Boston.com in April of 2010, the IRS placed more than $234,000 in liens against him for failing to pay payroll taxes. He’s also subject to tens of thousands of dollars in state tax liens. and in July , the Pennsylvania Department of Health ordered Brigham to close his four clinics in the state, saying he employed unlicensed caregivers.

The pro-life group Operation Rescue is calling for criminal charges against Brigham and has a detailed report of secret abortion clinics and abortion horrors by Brigham and his associates. Operation Rescue obtained several key documents which show that Brigham sticks his nose up in the face of the law and will continue to be a public safety concern if he is not stopped.

New Jersey authorities suspended Brigham’s medical license in November 2010, when the state Board of Medical Examiners said in part he had “provided grossly negligent care” to five women who sought late-term abortions. The state board also alleged Brigham had performed about 50 abortions in Elkton between January and August 2010 “without holding a license to practice in Maryland.”

‘Molotov cocktail’ hurled at pro-lifers for praying outside abortion clinic in Montana, formal complaint filed with the FBI

Bomb Thrown at Pro-Life Prayer Vigil: Thomas More Society Files Anti-Terrorism Complaint with FBI
Chief Legal Counsel Thomas Brejcha Decries ‘Ho-Hum’ Response from Kalispell, MT Police Officers
Contact: Tom Ciesielka, 312-422-1333, tc@tcpr.net

MEDIA ADVISORY, March 18, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — The Thomas More Society, acting on behalf of 40 Days for Life, a national campaign that sponsors peaceable pro-life prayer vigils outside abortion provider sites world-wide, has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Field Office in Helena, Montana. The Thomas More Society is calling for an immediate, intensive investigation of a vicious fire-bombing attack on a pro-lifer that occurred March 17, 2011 at around 6:15 p.m. near the All Family Health Care abortion center in Kalispell, Montana.

Karen Trierweiler, coordinator of the 40 Days prayer vigils in Kalispell, said that a homemade incendiary device was thrown at one of the vigil participants, an elderly retired woman, by an assailant — as yet unidentified — as she walked on the public sidewalk near the abortion provider’s premises. The victim did not see the bomb-thrower, nor did she see the bomb — akin to a “Molotov cocktail” — before it exploded on the sidewalk behind her, making a loud popping noise like a big firecracker as it burst into flame. Apparently the victim was unhurt.

Regaining her composure, the victim called Ms. Trierweiler to the scene, and she called the police. After a lengthy delay, a Kalispell police officer arrived. But instead of inspecting the bomb debris or calling evidence technicians to the scene, the officer remarked that police could never get prints or other evidence from the bomb’s remains, and that he would call the city’s garbage service to dispose of all the debris. Then he said that the 40 Days prayer vigil participants should expect this kind of reaction if they’re out there protesting. Questioning Officer Hoover’s assessment of the attack, Ms. Trierweiler called the Kalispell desk sergeant to complain, where she was unable to get further assistance.

Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society, said, “We are appalled by this terrible act of violence, while we’re immensely grateful that God’s grace spared this valiant pro-lifer any serious injury. But the reaction of Kalispell police officers after Ms. Trierweiler called them to the scene was equally appalling, indeed outrageous. We intend to file disciplinary complaints against both the officer who came to the crime scene and the desk sergeant whose tepid, indifferent, and grossly unprofessional response to this blatant act of domestic terrorism shows them both unfit to wear a police uniform and at best deserving of severe disciplinary action. We expect much better from the FBI and we will pursue the matter to the very highest levels of the U.S. Department of Justice if this case is not investigated promptly and vigorously and — once the assailant is identified and apprehended — prosecuted to the hilt,” Brejcha concluded.

Ms. Trierweiler also reported that an eyewitness has stepped forward, who was not part of the 40 Days campaign but rather a passerby, who saw the incident occur and who may be able to help the FBI track down the bomb thrower and bring him to justice.

Kalispell, Montana is a small town in the far northwestern part of the state that boasts an airport servicing jet air traffic as it is the western gateway to the famed Glacier National Park, which straddles the U.S.-Canadian border.

Boyfriend charged with murder in Springfield Gardens fire

The Springfield Gardens man accused of leaving his pregnant girlfriend and her son to burn is now charged with killing the woman and using the blaze to cover up his crime, the Queens district attorney said.

Jimmy Humphrey, 23, of Selover Road was arraigned on second-degree murder, abortion and tampering with evidence charges Monday afternoon — more than two weeks after he was charged with the arson that killed Linda Anderson, 25, and her 2-year-old son, Ayden Hayes, Queens DA Richard Brown said.

Anderson was expecting Humphrey’s son and was seven months pregnant when the suspect allegedly killed her, according to the DA.

“The defendant is accused of strangling to death a young mother and then attempting to cover up the crime by intentionally setting fire to her apartment, which resulted in the loss of another innocent life — the woman’s infant child. This case will be vigorously prosecuted to ensure that justice is served,” he said in a statement.

The DA said on July 13, Humphrey got into an argument with Anderson at her apartment at Anderson Road and 179th Street in Springfield Gardens, where he threw her onto the floor by the neck, killing her.

Initially, Humphrey claimed she knocked down a bottle of nail polish and a candle, which caused the small blaze, but later allegedly said he hit Anderson with a bottle of alcohol and used a lighter to set her couch on fire, according to the DA.

Humphrey knew she was pregnant and did not want to start a family with her, Brown said. The defendant allegedly knew Ayden was in the apartment while the fire was going on, but fled the scene and walked back to his apartment.

After he allegedly lied down in his home for some time, he made an anonymous 911 phone call about the fire, according to Brown. Firefighters were able to put out the fire, but Anderson was found dead and her toddler died at Queens Hospital Center of smoke inhalation and thermal injuries, the DA said.

The FDNY determined the fire was not accidental and not caused by natural forces, Brown said. The medical examiner determined that Anderson died as a result of neck compression and her fetus was viable at the time of her death, according to Brown.

If convicted of his charges, Humphrey faces up to 50 years in prison, Brown said.

Two more acts of hate crimes against Christians – Churches Burned

Yesterday, I reported that two Preachers were gunned down and murdered in the streets in Florida after they asked a man if they could share the Gospel with him. No major media coverage on their deaths, although I did hear a fairly long news piece this morning on the “not guilty plea” of Michael Jackson’s doctor. The media blacks out the hate crimes committed against Christians. This morning I am sad to report the news that 2 more Texas Churches have been burned by arsonists.

Feb 9,2010 (According to USA Today):

Two more churches erupted in flames near Tyler, Texas., Monday night, bringing to at least eight the number of East Texas churches hit by apparent arsonists since this year, the Tyler Morning Telegraph reports.

KYTX -TV of Tyler puts the total number of fires since the first of the year at 11, with seven confirmed as arsons cases.

Tom Crowley, special agent with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms’ National Response Team, says his group is “very active in the area” and are investigating reports of several vehicles seen near churches at all hours in the area.

The two fires Monday night erupted within three miles of each other in Smith County and about an hour apart, the Tyler newspaper reports.

County authorities said fire was already coming out the roof of Clear Springs Missionary Baptist Church when firefighters arrived. The spokesperson said it was evident that the back door had been broken into.

Pastor Carl Samples of Dover Baptist Church, who surveyed the damage Monday night at his church, says he “can’t comprehend how anyone would do the Lord’s house this way,” The Associated Press reports.

I am curious – When will the President send Federal Agents to protect Christians and churches like the government has and continues to do for abortion clinics? In Florida two preachers were gunned down and murdered? Why all these hate crimes against Christians? Where is the Hate Crime Legislation to protect them like there was for gays? Where are the “Conservative” leaders pointing these issues out? Where is the outrage?

Let’s not forget that no long ago, Sarah Palin’s church was also burned – yet – no one is saying that there is an organized effort to silence Christians, or that the “Hate Speech” on the left is contributing to “Ant-Christian Terrorism”.

Come on – SPEAK OUT Before more people are killed !
